casualties, but relative to any other technology we have short of sending in, you know, an assassin with a sniper rifle which in many cases just isn't practical, drones are the best way to sort of take the enemy off the battlefield. they don't cost a lot of money. there's no risk to u.s. forces and it's more or less invisible. you don't see pictures of the, by and large, huge craters because they leave pretty small imprints. it's just a couple hellfire missiles pretty often. pretty irresistible. what we have not had so much debate about is what are the consequences in those countries where people see the effects of the drones, their relatives are being killed. are we potentially creating more terrorists over the long run than we're killing. that's the burning policy question in washington. i think there hasn't been enough debate about it. >> the other question it raised in your article is the obama administration asked the faa to speed up processing of integrated drones into civilian air space. they could be used by police departments, farmers, builders, hollywood, but with this pro
that we have to get used to? >> it is, because we have the technology now to do things we haven't done before. but the argument that congress ought to be involved in supervising this is an important one, and we should not ignore it. the congress has a responsibility, not just the authority, but the responsibility to supervise the activities of the executive branch, and in particular, the intelligence committee which takes a look at all the black programs and is kept in the loop on everything certainly has the capability of making an evaluation of what is the right thing to do and is the wrong thing to do, and needs to weigh in. to the extent it doesn't do that, then it's abrogated its responsibilities. >> sam, what is your take on what the hearings are going to be like tomorrow for mr. brennan. this should be questions right out of the chute, shouldn't it? >> yes. this is a major component of the president's war on terror. it's a major component of his foreign policy. and listen, there is a difference between operational oversight, which is what congressman rogers was stressing in the

, information technology, even in accounting and finance. my frequent visits to employers across the state affirmed these reports. our state needs a way to accurately measure employment on a real-time basis. we need a better way to quickly measure trends and identify workforce needs by region, so we're working with members of the legislature to enact a system to help us connect workers to jobs in areas of great need from current and future employers. [applause] during the past year we partnered with the wisconsin covenant foundation to provide grants to technical colleges, employers in various regions, to improve workforce development. the next step will come in the state budget as we align new resources with our critcall needs in the workplace of the just a few days ago we graduated the first class under the wisconsin workforce partnership program. diane joined the program because she was unemployed after having been laid off and was looking for a new career. diane has already been hired by a corporation in new holstein as a c and c operator. she started work literally yesterday. diane is
had a brain. >> smart grid technology from ge will make the way we distribute electricity more efficient simply by technology. >> cute, right? ge is a part owner of nbc universal. but when we say smart grid, when we say if our grid only had a brain we are comparing it to what we have now. a very dumb grid. and we say it not because the grid did poorly on the iq test, but because in the iphone world, it is the huge brick cell phone, it is big, and when power outages happen they affect vast areas. it is not dynamic, the dumb grid can't reroute. with electronics it becomes increasingly over burdened. ge was not alone here, the smart grid, president obama wanted it more than just about anything else. he saw it as hoover dam, the tennessee valley authority. president obama had dream fs foa digital smart grid, rerouting power around them. he basically wanted to merge the grid with the internet so we could adjust our grids with the iphone when we were out of the house, program our appliances to save us money, and help sell electric cars. back to our utilities. but the president's advi

significant improvements. there are more improvements to be made, particularly in the area of technology that has been developed in iraq and afghanistan, in ability to surveil and apprehend, whether we are talking about drones or satellites. in a few months, down on the arizona border, the temperature will be 120 degrees. it is hard on people. it is hard for people to remain efficient during those conditions. the more technology and surveillance capacity you have, the less wear and tear on these brave men and women patrolling our border. we can do that. but it is coined to take a while. [indiscernible] [laughter] >> did you hear senator mccain said he was so sorry you got reelected? one thing i wanted to finish up with is, we are here talking about manufacturing's next chapter. there seems to be a new spring in the step of talking about manufacturing, that there are new technological breakthroughs happening. there are a lot of problems. the last 10, 15 years, i cannot remember manufacturing conferences that were not more doom and gloom. the you get the sense we are turning a corner in th
the beginning of long unending conversation about drone technology, which is actually much bigger than this extremely serious issue. you know, it's only going to get birg and more complex from here. i think it's fwood that the president is taking these steps to make it a little more transparent now, but i think there will be increasing pressure because we're going to see more use of drones in our own airspace. i mean, not necessarily for targeted killings, you know, but surveillance certainly. we're seeing this start to happen already, and i think when the drones come home, there will be a little bit more public awareness of what this technology means for us and the way that we live. >> in terms of the changing -- i mean, given where the aclu has been on this, which is to say i think skeptical at best, are you -- is it your position that you are disappointed in the tack that the president has taken, visa have i national security, you about also transparency. when he came into office, it was amid promises to close guantanamo. there have been many people that have made that very difficul
of this technology to kill americans even if those americans are deplorable. what is the difference between doing that and letting the c.i.a. do open hits with guns and rifles in the u.s.? >> jennifer: and i think these are really important points that you have to have protocols you got to have structures and you got to protect the rights of american citizens, but to say that you couldn't be using drone shouldn't be using drones at all because of collateral damage. >> you get around the need of the long time it takes to get a war in. there is no reason why we shouldn't be able to set up something like that to have a check and balance here. >> jennifer: stephanie let me flip you back on the republican side. there are republicans like senator richard burr but really the fact that there is this fight on the left to get back to that question, don't you think that it assures that brennan is more likely to get confirmed by picking a lot of republican votes? >> i agree, and i also think that just jumping back to the gun argument it also helps news terms of the people who think they need guns to protect

argument for you? >> there are supposedly 70 countries that have some kind of drone technology. but the drone is the instrument of the 21st century when it comes to air power, and that's a reality. the problem comes down to really the morality, and the white house has put out three criteria, including is it an imminent threat? if it were delayed, would it cause greater risk? and is there no other alternative? the problem is those always involve subjective judgments. it's the same thing as firing a gun. it's in the eyes of the person who holds the weapon, and it isn't always a balanced perception, and the truth is that the drones have generated enormous backlash in pakistan particularly, where the united states has used them the most, as well as in yemen, the second highest number of targets. >> dan, robin mentions the morality of it. i hear often from radio listeners who sense a hypocrisy in that they see the obama administration being critical of harsh interrogation methods but going along with the drone program. is there some inherent hypocrisy in that? >> well, there was an
technology. it's a different method of solving a problem. there's no due process at that point. in acts of war, in acts of violence when we proactively or even reactively act against it, this is just more an advanced way of doing it. where is the due process in those other situations? obviously it comes back to the question of andrea as far as the word imminent, but i just see it as a more sophisticated, more technologically advanced way of solving problems. >> you talked about waco. i think it was a horrible mistake by the justice department and the people on the ground to do what they did. i think it was handfisted, and a lot of people died unnecessarily. that said, the government believed at that point that the children inside were in imminent harm. n in imminent danger. i'm not sure how you save the children by burning the place down, but that's the calculation that they made. and that goes back, steve, to the question of imminent. what is imminent? obviously i'd be the first one to say if they have evidence that this guy is planning an attack, kill him. fine with it. but you know w

border today, and much of the technology that was much ballyhooed about sealing the border perfectly, such as the surveillance watch towers that boeing put down there at the cost of a couple billion dollars, couldn't tell the difference ultimately between a cow and a human being. i think, to look elsewhere, if we're going to talk about security. >> congressman? >> i want to be clear here. i am not in favor of the senate plan which has additional border security and a litmus test before we can have pathway to citizenship, but i do believe we have to continue efforts to strengthen the border. why? for the reason the guest just said, which is as the economy improves, then we may see an uptick in individuals who are crossing the border illegally, and that is not what we want from a good immigration policy that works. we want a process where it's legal. look, we are a nation of immigrants and laws, and we need people to follow our laws, but we need a law that works, and that's why we need comprehensive immigration reform. >> so one of the things i'd like to ask you is, if this emphasis on
other countries have drones? you know it seems -- >> yeah. >> technology technology is always going down. this is something that is sort of justified like the caller suggested, but it's not going to be -- you know we have seen stories about people having personal drones. there was a story a couple of months ago about, you know, a millionaire in california who bought his personal drone to follow his kid walking to school so he could see him, you know, between his house and school. so it's not from that points, it's not all that much longer before, you know, the bad guys out there have access toss that kind of technology and then the shoe is on the other foot so to speak and you would suspect folks wouldn't be so thrilled about the idea that it's you can do this without having people involved. >> good points to which i would add, when we send boots on the ground, right, the american people know where they are going, why they are going, and when they are coming home. at least that's what we demand. right? these drones are sent out by the c.i.a. or the defen
